For many years, people suffered from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) without hope of treatment. On top of suffering from a life-threatening illness, victims of these conditions were also bullied and sometimes even cut off from society. Because of this, HIV and AIDS sufferers rejoiced when medicines like Truvada were introduced to the market to treat and prevent HIV and AIDS. The drug promised to fight this deadly condition without causing harsh side effects. However, this rejoicing has turned to anguish as users of this medicine have started to experience dangerous medical issues that could be linked to the drug.

What is Truvada?

Truvada, its primary component Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF), and other related drugs like Viread, Atripla, Complera, and Genvoya have recently been tied to life-threatening side effects, such as kidney failure, decreasing bone density, and lactic acidosis. Patients who have taken one of these drugs and are experiencing serious side effects have started filing lawsuits against the manufacturer Gilead Sciences, Inc.

If you have taken Truvada or another drug containing TDF and you have experienced serious side effects that have endangered your health, you are understandably scared and angry that a medicine you trusted to make you better might have caused you harm. However, your situation doesn’t have to be hopeless. You might have legal options you can take to get justice and compensation for the ways this reckless company harmed you.

How do I know if Truvada caused my medical problems?

Without a medical evaluation, it is difficult to know if Truvada is to blame for your medical issues. If you took Truvada and are experiencing serious side effects, visit a doctor as soon as possible to have your injuries and condition evaluated.

A healthcare provider can treat your symptoms, and they can run tests to help determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. This evaluation is important to help you heal as quickly as possible, plus the medical report will be a critical piece of evidence if you file a Truvada lawsuit. Tests can reveal bone, liver, or kidney damage, which could be tied to Truvada. A medical professional can also provide medical records that can be used to help establish when your medical issues began and show whether they could have been caused by something other than Truvada exposure.

An experienced Truvada lawsuit attorney can use these medical records and other pieces of evidence, such as expert testimony, to help prove that Truvada caused your serious medical problems.

Who can file a Truvada lawsuit?

Truvada fact sheets filed recently with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration indicate that Truvada can cause severe side effects, including kidney, bone, and liver issues. However, reports indicate that Gilead – Truvada’s manufacturer – knew about these dangerous side effects much earlier and failed to warn patients about the potential risks of their product.

There is also evidence that Gilead purposely exposed victims to this dangerous drug longer than necessary by delaying production of tenofovir alafenamide (TAF), a safer and more useful drug, in order to make more money from the expensive Truvada.

Numerous people were harmed by Gilead’s negligent actions, often at a time when these victims were already vulnerable and experiencing the life-threatening conditions of HIV or AIDS. Gilead must be held responsible for negligently misleading patients and knowingly exposing them to unnecessary harm.

If you or a loved one have suffered because of Gilead’s negligence, you might be entitled to get compensation for the harm they’ve caused you through a Truvada lawsuit. The primary types of Truvada lawsuits include:

  • Class-action: This is when one Truvada lawsuit is filed to represent multiple plaintiffs
  • Multi-district litigation (MDL): This is when many individual Truvada lawsuits are handled at one time

These suits can be filed by a person harmed by Truvada or a family member of the person who was harmed. However, in order to win a Truvada lawsuit, your case must meet multiple requirements and must be filed on time. Most states have “statutes of limitations,” which set firm deadlines for filing lawsuits. If you don’t file your lawsuit in time, it can be impossible for you to win compensation for your injuries, no matter how strong your case.

These “statute of limitations” requirements vary from state to state and are typically based on a certain time period after you were injured by Truvada’s side effects or should have discovered the injury. Some states also have additional provisions if your loved one died because of their injuries or overall caps on the maximum amount of time that anyone has to file a lawsuit, no matter the circumstances.

The regulations are confusing and filing deadlines can be difficult to miss when you’re just trying to recover from your injuries caused by this negligent company. An experienced attorney can help ensure all required paperwork is completed thoroughly and convincingly and is filed on time.

You May Qualify for Monetary Compensation

A strong investigation can bring compelling evidence to the forefront, and can help you win your claim against the makers of Truvada, enabling you to receive maximum monetary compensation that can help cover:

  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Funeral Expenses

Why kinds of medical issues and side effects can Truvada cause?

Truvada has been tied to a wide variety of side effects, including common symptoms like:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Stomach or abdominal pain
  • Headache
  • Weight loss
  • Rash
  • Sleeping problems
  • Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Weakness
  • Difficulty breathing

Truvada has also been tied to life-threatening conditions and even death. Severe medical complications might include:

  • Kidney damage and failure: Taking high doses of Truvada over long periods of time can cause the toxic drug to build up in the kidneys, leading to kidney damage and even renal failure. Symptoms of damage might include skin color changes, anemia, bruising, muscle cramps, trouble breathing, headache, fatigue, confusion, thirst, decreased urine, nausea or vomiting, or swelling.
  • Bone problems, including osteoporosis: Truvada has been known to causes symptoms, such as discomfort in limbs, bone pain, and muscle pain. In addition to these and other bone-related symptoms, it has also been linked to chronic and severe issues like osteoporosis, osteopenia, and broken bones stemming from decreased bone density after prolonged exposure to Truvada’s toxic components.
  • Lactic acidosis: When Truvada builds up in the kidneys, it can damage the kidneys’ ability to remove lactate (or lactic acid) from the blood a lead to lactic acidosis, one of the most life-threatening conditions tied to Truvada. If lactic acidosis is temporary, it can cause more minor yet still troublesome symptoms like weakness, cramps, nausea, diarrhea, decreased appetite, fatigue, and dizziness. However, if lactic acidosis continues, it can lead to kidney failure or respiratory failure and can be fatal

What kind of compensation is available for Truvada victims?

If you were injured by the careless and wrongful actions of Truvada’s manufacturer or your loved one died after suffering from Truvada side effects, no one can ever appropriately compensate you for the agony you’ve experienced. However, you shouldn’t have to bear the costs for this company’s negligent actions.

You deserve compensation for the ways Gilead carelessly risk your life or the lives of your loved ones by failing to warn you about the dangers of Truvada. As a victim of Truvada, you might be entitled to receive compensation to help cover the devastation you are enduring through no fault of your own.

Compensation might cover damages, such as:

  • Ongoing medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages while you recover
  • Reduced capacity to earn future wages
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Emotional trauma
